South Lake Union, on the east side of Seattle Center, is a destination in itself. Though it's still in transition (construction is underway in many areas), Amazon's new headquarters here have brought more amenities, such as boutiques and upscale restaurants, including several Tom Douglas eateries. The biggest attractions are Lake Union itself as well as the incredible REI megastore.
